When Rosalen Maldonado tinkers with the derelict freighter, she's just hoping to prove she deserves a scholarship to University. She certainly doesn't count on waking the ship's damaged AI or having three stowaways, Micah Rotherwood and brothers Jem and Barre Durbin, along for the ride. They all have their private reasons for hiding aboard and lives they are seeking to escape, but if the accidental crew can't work together and learn to trust each other, they'll die together, victims of a computer that doesn't realize the war ended decades before any of them were even born.

From Publishers Weekly

Aug 25, 2014 – Cohen (Future Tense) takes readers through an admirable but uneven futuristic adventure with plenty of YA-crossover appeal. Rosalen "Ro" Maldonado wants nothing more than to escape her emotionally abusive father's grasp, get off Daedalus Station, and go to university. In the meantime she takes a job as an engineering intern and starts investigating a derelict ship docked at the space station. The ship proves full of mysteries, including drugs grown on board and illegal weapons hidden in the cargo hold. When Ro awakens the ship's ancient, damaged AI, she and three companions stow away aboard a vessel plunging into deep space. They must work together to survive, even as hostile forces pursue them and the ship recognizes them only as threats. The intriguing premise never really gels, and an overly long setup leads to a meandering plot and hasty resolution. However, Cohen has real talent with character development and interaction, and prickly, defensive Ro is a sympathetic and interesting heroine. Younger readers will forgive the flaws, and older ones will hope for stronger future volumes that build on the promise of this one. (BookLife)
